kikkoman products used:


For Teriyaki “Meatballs”
8 oz sliced baby bella mushrooms
½ yellow onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 stalks green onion, diced
1 tsp grated ginger
¼ tsp salt
⅓ cup walnuts, chopped
½ cup cooked brown rice
½ cup rolled oats
2 tbsp Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
chopped scallions, to top


For Teriyaki Sauce
¼ cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp tapioca flour or cornstarch
¼ tsp red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the diced onion and saute for about 3-4 minutes, until the onions become translucent.
  3. Add in the mushrooms, salt, garlic, green onions and ginger and saute for an additional 5-6 minutes until the mushrooms cook down.
  4. Once the mushroom mixture is ready, add the mixture to a food processor with the walnuts, brown rice, oats, Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Blend together for about 30-40 seconds. Scrape down the sides and pulse again until a sticky mixture forms.
  5. To create the meatballs, spoon about 2 tbsp worth of the mixture and roll it into balls with your hands. I like to wet my hands for this process if the batter is too wet to work with.
  6. Layer the meatballs on a parchment lined baking sheet and spray them with cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  7. Add the teriyaki sauce ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together. Pour it into a saute pan and heat it on medium heat, letting it cook for about 2-3 minutes until it starts to thicken. Once thick, add in your cooked mushroom meatballs and toss them gently to coat.
  8. Garnish with chopped scallions and enjoy!

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
